Is there a baby boy on the way for Beyonce? Following the news that R&B star Beyonce Knowles is may be pregnant with her first child Irish bookmaker Paddy Power have released odds on what the bootylicious babe will call the little nipper.
It’s 4/1 that Beyonce and Jay Z name the bundle of joy Matthew after Beyonce’s dad and mentor while it’s 5/1 they call the baby Tina after Beyonce’s mother. The name Tina could also be a tribute to the Queen of Rock & Roll, Tina Turner.
Other names on the bookies list of possibles include Shawn, which is husband Jay Z’s real name, at 9/2 and JayZJ or Jay Junior at 16/1. Outsiders on the list include Destiny, after Beyonce’s band Destiny’s Child at 100/1 and Gwyneth, after close friend and movie star Gwyneth Paltrow, also at 100/1.
It’s 50:50 on what the gender of the baby will be with Paddy Power quoting 5/6 that it will be male and 5/6 it will be female. The odds on the showbiz couple having a set of twins is 33/1!
Sharon McHugh, spokesperson for Paddy Power said: “There have been no sightings yet of Beyonce shopping for pink or blue baby clothes so it’s impossible for us to predict what the sex of the baby will be but she is extremely close to her parents so she could choose to honor them by naming her firstborn after one of them.”
